three former u.s. presidents with him. not just george w. bush, but president clinton and president carter. president obama is due to speak at the memorial tomorrow, and this is going to be a huge event. most people think it's going to be a really raucous, joyous event. a lot of music, a lot of singing, a lot of celebration. it's going to have 95,000 people there. and they are coming on a first come, first serve basis. there are no tickets. let's hope that's all an organized line. i can tell you it's taking a long time to get credentials. they're being very careful about everything. they're taking this seriously, as you can imagine. it's a clare manifestation of the massive respect in which nelson mandela was, is, and will continue to be held throughout the world. >> his ability to gather and unify during life and after death as well. and let's talk about this massive gathering. you said 95,000 people. a lot of personalities there, yes? >> there are certainly going to be a lot of personalities, but they make up sort of the vip delegation. there are apparently 90 or so heads of state

that george w. bush didn't use e-mail and he certainly was president during the time of handheld mobile devices. he didn't have one. but president obama, that's certainly a tool that he has always had. now i will say, though, the president doesn't completely shun all apple products. he uses the ipad quite a bit when he's looking at news or reviewing one of his speeches. it was also interesting yesterday, carol. he talked about how his daughters, sasha and malia spend quite a bit of time on their iphones. we saw that during the inaugural parade just this past january, that they were taking photos of the parade and photos of their parents and even taking some selfies. the president, no, he can't have an iphone, saying it's for security reasons. >> understand. brianna keilar, at the white house this morning. >>> budget battle hits your refrigerator. many of us could see milk prices double, unless congress acts soon. too big. too small. too soft. too tasty.
